Writers from around the world have joined together to produce this anthology which offers a wide range of worship resources, from simple prayers to complete service outlines, for the seasons of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany.

Christ's coming into the world is good news and joyful prayers, songs, poems and readings from many cultures will enrich our seasonal celebrations and personal preparations. Yet the incarnation, now as then, profoundly challenges the unjust systems and attitudes that condemn millions to lives of hunger, poverty, disease and homelessness. Their voices are heard in this anthology too, reminding us of our call to continue building the kingdom which Christ announced.
